Play ball! Today is the start of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season, and fans are filling the stands to watch America’s Pastime.
Whether you’re a Cardinals fan or a Braves fanatic, a Yankees supporter or a Red Sox die-hard, Opening Day is a blank slate, a time where there are seemingly infinite possibilities for how the season can turn out (even if there really aren’t).
The return of MLB play evokes a deep sense of nostalgia for many – of childhood hours spent playing catch or trips to see a favorite team play in a distant city. No matter what your memories are, the return of the season brings them all flooding back.
Today, you can watch a number of teams play for the first time in the regular season. Some of the highlights include the St. Louis Cardinals vs. the Milwaukee Brewers, the Atlanta Braves vs. the Philadelphia Phillies, the Baltimore Orioles vs. the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels vs. the Oakland Athletics.
Although today is Opening Day for the majors, the minor league teams haven’t kicked off their seasons yet. But they are gearing up to start soon – and that means the Travs will be back in action.
The Arkansas Travelers will have their opening night on April 11, at 7:10 p.m., at Dickey-Stephens Park. This marks the 13thseason the Travs have played ball at Dickey-Stephens.
For Opening Night, the Travelers will be facing off against the Tulsa Drillers, the Double-A Affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Throughout the season, the Travelers will be holding a number of special promotional nights. Check out the list of all these cool events! Also, don’t miss AY Night at Dickey-Stephens Park! On April 27, come to the game and say hello to the AY staff.
